Hajime No Ippo – Rising Episode 13 Impressions

Hajime No Ippo – Rising Episode 10 Impressions

Hajime No Ippo – Rising Episode 10 – The Face Of Determination What a fantastic and suiting name for an episode like this, Episode 10 “The Face of Determination” is the episode that finally kicks off the highly-anticipated bout between Ryuuhei and Ippo, and I couldn’t honestly have created a layout for an episode better than that of this one.

Hajime No Ippo – Rising Episode 8 Impressions

Hajime No Ippo – Rising Episode 8 – The Mad Dog and the Red Wolf Hajime No Ippo, as a series, has a certain structure; there are pre-fight episodes, the fight episodes themselves, post-fight episodes and then there may possibly be an entirely humorous episode thrown in just to change things up a little bit. Episode 8 is very much a pre-fight episode wherein which Ippo must now train up the D...

Hajime No Ippo – Rising Episode 7 Impressions

Hajime No Ippo – Rising Episode 7 – Cheese Champion Episode 7 of Hajime No Ippo – Rising was a mixed bag of fun I’d say.

Hajime No Ippo – Rising Episode 6 Impressions

Hajime No Ippo – Rising Episode 6 – The Distance Between Me And Glory The episode where it all comes to an end, the fight that is, and I never expected it to go down quite the way it did. We’re met with Aoki’s “Frog Jump” from the last episode just to put it all back in perspective for those viewers who had forgotten how exactly the last episode ended. This episode wa...

Hajime No Ippo – Rising Episode 5 Impressions

Hajime No Ippo – Rising Episode 5 – 100% Fake As far as crazy episodes go, this one would have to be one of the craziest. Episode 5, 100% Fake, begins with the start of the fight between Aoki and Imae which began at the very end of the last episode, I say “begins” because the last episode showed nothing of the fight except for the combatants entering the ring. The way I do these ...

Hajime No Ippo – Rising Episode 4 Impressions

Hajime No Ippo – Rising Episode 4 – The Goddess Of Victory This episode starts off literally exactly where it left off in Episode 3 (click here to see Episode 3 Impressions) with Aoki being stark-naked right after weighing in for the match as his challenger Imae walks into the room to see his full-frontal nudity. It contrasts the two fighters and also does a good job at both lightening the mood an...

Hajime No Ippo – Rising Episode 2 Impressions

Hajime No Ippo – Rising Episode 2 – The Dempsey Roll Destroyed Let’s just dive straight into the episode impression: It begins exactly where Episode 1 left off and it seems as though Ippo has been given no breathing room from Shimabukuro, he’s relentlessly pounding at Ippo’s body and our champ is really starting to feel the effects of it all. He’s brought to his knees...
